Caplio G3

Curved precision.Simplicity that leads to creation.
The Caplio G3 is a very simple and stylish digital camera that was curved and sculpted to fit comfortably in the photographer's hand. Renowned architect and industrial designer Masayuki Kurokawa, in collaboration with in-house designers at Ricoh, developed its unique shape, which gives you the ability to capture action opportunities quickly and reliably through its phenomenally fast shutter response speed.
